Roman Catholic's Courtney Stanley, a senior point guard, has made an oral commitment to play basketball at Loyola University in Chicago. "I really got close with Loyola's coaches, got to know them real well over the summer," Stanley said. "That was a big factor in my decision. " The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Stanley averaged about eight points per game last season while helping the Cahillites to a 28-3 record and a 59-56 upset of Neumann-Goretti in the Catholic League championship game.

Marcus Morris scored 18 points to lead top-ranked Kansas to an 80-68 victory over 14th-ranked Texas last night in Austin, Texas. The Jayhawks easily handled an opponent that a few weeks ago was supposed to challenge them for the Big Twelve title. Kansas (23-1 overall, 9-0 league) outmuscled and outhustled the Longhorns (19-5, 5-4) in just about every way, holding the top-scoring team in the conference to 37 percent shooting and scoring 27 points off 17 turnovers. Freshman J'Covan Brown scored 28 points for the Longhorns, who have lost five of their last seven games after gaining the first No. 1 ranking in school history a month ago. Butler 62, Loyola of Chicago 47 - Matt Howard scored 20 points to send 18th-ranked Butler past Loyola of Chicago in Indianapolis.

Matt Howard had 19 points and eight rebounds, Gordon Hayward finished with 18 points and No. 15 Butler (22-2, 13-1 Horizon League) hit 13 three-pointers in an 80-61 victory over Illinois-Chicago in Indianapolis last night. The Flames (11-14, 4-11) were led by Josh Mayo with 19 points. Illinois-Chicago played without coach Jimmy Collins, who was in Syracuse, N.Y., attending the funeral of his mother, Lorraine Collins Trapp. Butler also played with a heavy heart less than 24 hours after Lorin Maurer, the girlfriend of Kevin Kuwik, the team's coordinator of basketball operations, died in a plane crash in Clarence Center, N.Y., near Buffalo.

Jay Wright has done this long enough that the truths about the NCAA tournament are no longer mysteries that need to be unwrapped. Seasons come and seasons go, but what it takes to advance deep into the national championship tournament remains the same. "First, you have to play well. Period. After that, it's matchups," Wright said as the No. 2-seeded Wildcats prepared for a Thursday opener against Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Matching up well against the opponents that fall into your path is where luck enters the equation.

THEY WERE supposed to meet on Dec. 28, as part of the Gotham Classic. But weather got in the way. So exactly 2 months later, Temple (19-8, 8-5 Atlantic 10) will play Detroit (19-10, 11-4 Horizon League) Thursday night at the Liacouras Center. Two weeks ago the Owls, who are trying to get to the NCAA Tournament for the sixth consecutive year, were coming off a bad home loss to Duquesne. Since then, they've won by a point at Massachusetts, beaten La Salle decisively on North Broad Street and rolled at Charlotte.

THE NATION remembers Butler playing four dome games in 2010 and 2011. Inside the Horizon League, the Bulldogs played in many gyms. So, coming to Saint Joseph's to play their first Atlantic 10 game was very familiar territory. The reality is that it might not matter where Butler plays or who it plays. Brad Stevens' team just plays the game with passion and intelligence for however long it takes. The Hawks did a lot of things right Wednesday night at a jammed and quite loud Hagan Arena.

NEW YORK - Although a scorecard is needed to keep track of the shifting teams in the Atlantic Ten men's basketball conference, one thing that remained the same is the quality of the competition. The league's coaches and media members think St. Joseph's is the class of that competition. The Hawks were picked as the preseason favorite in the 16-team league, which, at least for this year, may be as strong as it has ever been. It is a remarkable resurgence for the Hawks, who were 11-22 two seasons ago and 20-14 last year while earning an NIT bid. With all five starters back, plus A-10 sixth man of the year Ronald Roberts Jr., one can see why there is so much optimism.

NEW YORK - In the history of the Atlantic 10, one team has made the Final Four (Massachusetts, 1996). With very bold moves earlier this year, the league got two schools that account for three of the last 12 Final Four spots and just happen to have two of America's best coaches of any age. Losing Temple and Charlotte after this season to football riches could have been disastrous. There is only joy when Butler and VCU arrive to join the party. Butler's Brad Stevens sees the game through young eyes with a much older man's vision, VCU's Shaka Smart coaches without fear and his team plays just like he coaches.
